Alright, alright, I know early access games are often questionable (personally, not a fan of the concept), but hey - for the low low price of free, what could go wrong?

A brief description from the store page: "This exploration game has 3 main characters: a business man, an old man and a child. They find themselves on a road which is apparently the same, but changes upon their perception of reality".

The reviews say it's only a few minutes long, but many more levels, trading cards and achievements etc. are to be added in the future (and, at least presumably, you'll get access to them for free - we're playing the long game here). Apparently it's headed for Oculus Rift as well.

I see what you mean when it comes to early access games, but as long as the developer wants to continue developing the game and not just take the money and run, you can find some cracking games. A good example for this is Prison Architect. If you're ready to put up with bugs they're totally worth it.

Not sure how they plan to implement cards if the game's gonna be free (unless it's only free while in early access). Don't think Valve allows cards in Free to Play games.

"We've decided to include the first three levels for FREE and then add the levels during the development.

the complete version will include:

- 20+ levels
- Oculus rift mode
- Multiplayer mode
- Emoticons and cards "

So basically it's a demo of 3 levels that you get for free.

There's at least one game that's FTP on steam and has cards

Ah, shoulda read it all.
I guess it means they'll be charging for it later on down the line, but getting in now means you'll get it all free.

Does it have in-game transactions? They usually have a spend-requirement of something like $9 per card. Don't think there are any free games with free cards, though.
